, mitt romney is going to speak only for his corporate funders and the dirty energy empires that many of them run doing what he has to keep the pipelines of oil and campaign cash flowing. and that includes pandering to the far right who shout u.s.a. rather than confronting this frightening reality that we have entered a new normal in which everyday life is punctuated by frequent and intensifying natural climate disasters. and the megaphone of this fringe wing fox news, keeps reinforcing that message. >> where's the proof? these global warming claims have been debunked time and time again. >> you know what the problem is? there's more people living at the shore so there are more impacts. this is nothing to do with global warming. >> you can pretty much predict moments after a catastrophe global warming freaks will link it to global warming. >> next five to ten years we're probably going to see more storms around the eastern seaboard. has nothing to do with global warming. >> jennifer: that is deliberately dece
and tapping into domestic energy resources. i have to tell you the one message that they have been hitting hard in the last final days of this campaign, they have been going after the president on this issue of bipartisanship. mitt romney is making the case that the president has forgotten his mandate to be a uniter in this country. the president said people should be voting because it is the best revenge. mitt romney has been telling crowds all day long that people should be voting out of what they think is best for the country in their heart. so that is the message that they've been delivering all day long. i can also tell you that the front of the campaign plane we have seen a higher number of top campaign advisers flying with the gop nominee including michael levitt who has been leading the readiness project, as they skaul it. i talked to governor levitt for just a few brief moments in iowa and he said what they've been doing is building a ship, he called it, that they hope will set sail and we'll find out whether that will happen on tuesday. >> maybe, maybe not. i want to listen in on
side, how about 10 to 20 inches of snow potentially because of the real energy from the area of low pressure. so really it's a powerful hybrid. here we are still now a hurricane here. you can see where it is. right now the center of circulation off the florida coast from florida to upstate new york will be impacted by this. so instead of this hurricane moving like it normally would, getting picked up by the jet stream pushing east, we have a rex block. what that means meteorologically all you need to know it's going westward instead of eastward. with that about monday, maybe evening into the night time, we'll see the center of circulation come ashore somewhere between new york and washington. four to eight foot storm surge potentially in that area. that's really one of the first hazards we'll see with this. then upstate new york, western new york, this area of low pressure sits and spin and doesn't move as fast as it's moving now. the potential for maybe a foot of rain if it sits there. an inch an hour for a day, day and a half so that's where perilous situations come in with the in
a stop trading. the markets, when they ropen, will be focusing in part on energy prices, particularly gasoline prices because eight of the country's refineries producing about 8 percent of our daily supply in gasoline where in the path of sandy. about six of those refineries which haveeen operating a reduced capacity and are ramping up production leaving to refineries, bulk of them in new jersey. they have simply lost power and plotted and will be back quickly it is uncertain when they're will be returning to of storage products and production. recovery efforts under way tonight after the superstar and crippled the east coast. in new york city, subways and tunnels flooded. hundreds of thousands are without power, and joining us tonight on the phone, the former governor of new york, george pataki. good to have you with this. you have seen much of the devastation. can you compare this to anything that we have seen before? >> you know, it's really differ from what we've seen before. we have had terrible storms. hurricanes, blizzards we had the attacks of september 11th, but this, it wasn
the tropical entity. it's got the energy from this area of low pressure, which in essence is almost like a nor ea -- nor'easter in the winter. this is a projection of the rain coming up the coast, potentially about ten inches. look on the backside of this down the spied ne of the appalachians. how about ten to 20 inches of snow? power outages will be huge as well. and airport delays. whether we see them, which we most likely would. 30 and 40 mimp gu-mile-per-hour. we're looking at five days of some very tough travel. >> thank you for the heads up. we appreciate it. this storm is already having an impact on the presidential cam pains. particularly in some key swing states. both vice president joe biden and mitt romney have cancelled campaign rallies in virginia beach that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping people with that storm. first lady michelle obama as well cancelled a campaign rally. this was in another critical swing state, in new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in du

are going to ballots at. we need stability in taxes and regulations, and number 4 we need an energy policy like we have done in north dakota. if we support energy, we can reignite america's engine, at the energy independence, national security, job security, and that is what we need to do. >> is interesting what congressman berg says. if you look at the time he served in the legislature, it is roughly equivalent, 4000 percen $. quit talking about harry reid or what ever is. i was not in the senate. i think it is atrocious we do not have a budget. that is the reason we do not have a budget is because both political parties refused to sit down and refuse to solve the problems. there is excellent documents out there, but i believe we have need a balanced budget amendment because the and the way congress will balance the budget is that they have to. that is the path forward for our people and for our country. we need to be strategic. congressman berg voted for sequestration, a disaster, a disaster for defense and jobs trip we need to do everything we can to do this the right way, and that is t
been traveling with the president. let's talk about the energy there and the size of that crowd. can you give us an idea about both of those things? >> well, we haven't gotten an official crowd count yet, craig. i can tell you that the crowd here is certainly energized. a couple thousand people. james taylor started things off, warmed up the crowd before president obama took the stage, so he got things going. president obama getting a lot of cheers. the president has made this his closing arguments really about trust. you heard him say that essentially mitt romney does not do what he says he's going to do. he talked about his record as governor in massachusetts. of course, that is a neighboring state to new hampshire. this crowd quite familiar with mitt romney's record. one of the things president obama focusing on today and really throughout his campaign speeches recently is the fact that mitt romney says he is not going to increase taxes for middle class families and that he did that while he was governor of massachusetts. the romney campaign pushing back saying president obama is

. that basically means a lot of energy and cold, dry air to mix in. then, you have a high-pressure system parked over greenland. that creates a blocking pattern, forcing energy back towards the storm and driving it into the east coast. the biggest concern in the coming days is the potential for four-foot to ten-foot coastal surge. that's expected in vulnerable areas, like d.c., new jersey and new york, where evacuation orders may be enforced. even though the forecast path takes its center rig into southern new jersey and parts of delaware, the wind field will be huge on this. >>> that's why we have to check in with our matt gutman. he's in nags head, north carolina. matt, i'm going to give you those 50-mile-per-hour gusts today. >> reporter: thanks a lot, ginger. we really are starting to feel the impact of that texas-sized storm starting to wallop here. want to give you a sense of how frothy the water has become. it's been whipping up this foam everywhere. now, across the mid-atlantic, they're in full swing with preparations there. even starting to hand out sandbags in washington, d.c. with the
